Scott Gleeson USA TODAY Published 9:31 AM EDT Apr 1, 2019 Virginia vs. Auburn? For those who picked this Final Four matchup on their bracket, kudos. The Cavaliers might've been the least likely of No. 1 seeds to get to the NCAA tournament's final weekend after historically losing to a No. 16 seed last March and looking shaky in the ACC tournament.

Just a year after losing to No. 16 seed Maryland-Baltimore County in the first round, the Cavaliers rewrote history by reaching the Final Four for the first time since 1984. As Virginia guard Kyle Guy summed it up, "we made bad history last year. We’re making good history this year.” Here's a look at all the thrilling moments from the epic Elite Eight showdown: 1. Ty Jerome's miss, Mamadi Diakite tip-out with five seconds left.

That put Jerome at the line, who calmly made the first to slice the deficit to two. Then he missed the second one — claiming he "short-armed" the shot postgame — and it was … [Read more...] about March Madness Final Four: How Virginia won NCAA tournament’s top game
Major anniversaries were marked this year by Ukrainians in the United States.

Meeting him at his consistory office on Toompea in the shadow of the landmark St. Mary's Cathedral, more commonly known as the Dome Church (Estonian: Toomkirik), one can't but help get a sense of mystique, of the chequered history that the institution, and its buildings exude.Arguably the 'national' church, with traditions stretching back through Estonia's struggles for independence and bearing the brunt of the anti-church stance of the Soviet Union, the EELK's role and position often gets clouded by the oft-repeated claim that Estonia is the ''least religious country in Europe'', so it was seasonally appropriate to get the Archbishop's thoughts on this and other current topics facing society in Estonia and beyond.A physically imposing presence, sharing the same rigorous command of the English language many of his contemporaries in politics and business display (''I like to speak a lot'', he says – an interviewer's dream, in fact, as it means things should take care of … [Read more...] about Christmas interview with Archbishop Urmas Viilma
